Don Bosco’s educational initiative envisages to fill the education gap among children. Children who belong migrant families are deprived of better education facilities, therefore through our remedial classes these children are provided quality education and we work on the areas where they are mostly lacking behind. Special emphasis is given on girl education and women education, so that they and their families get empowered. Remedial classes are proved to be quite effective in changing the comprehensive personality of the students and building their interest in studies.

Remedial Classes

Don Bosco primarily is committed to providing basic education and healthcare to underprivileged children. Don Bosco Navjeevan, an NGO for poor child education believes that whether you are addressing healthcare, poverty, population control, unemployment or human rights, there's no better place to start than in the corridors of education. Don Bosco Navjeevan Chandigarh has been reaching out to 350 underprivileged children from various slums and colonies by setting up 10 centres in various locations in the city of Chandigarh.

Education is both the means as well as the end to a better life; means, because it empowers an individual to earn his/her livelihood and the end because it increases one's awareness on a range of issues – from healthcare to appropriate social behaviour to understanding one's rights, and in the process evolve as a better citizen.
